+ - Scientists studying mutations in MRSA strain->

jb.cancer writes: Scientists at Rockefeller University are studying mutations of a Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) strain in an unnamed victim. The bug has been tracked over a 12 week period during which the genetic mutations under influence of antibiotics were studied. Scientists hope to understand the underlying mechanism used by such microbes to evade drugs.

The story from BBC is here.

One wonders if multi-drug resistant microbes or a new class of antibiotics will have first strike in this bio-war.
